He chose, for us to choose wisely
“I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying His voice, and holding fast to him, for he is your life and length of days…”
The Lord God chose to create mankind.
He chose to give us the opportunity to know Him.
He chose the descendants of Abraham’s family through Isaac, the promised son, to be his bloodline to Jesus.
He chose to send Jesus to become like one of us, in every way, to teach us, and give us hope.
He chose to accept Jesus’ own blood sacrifice as our own, that we could be made righteous in His eyes.
He chose to call us, even non-Jewish people, aka Gentiles, His children!
He has chosen to give us a little more time here that we might make good use of it:
– to accept Him as our Lord,
– to serve Him with gladness,
– to share the great news with others,
– to love them as He has loved us.
If you already have made this decision to follow and serve the Lord Jesus, then please read the next section:
Don’t waste your time!!
Choose to use it wisely and for good.
“We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day;
night is coming, when no one can work.”
